This is my first post and I agree with you about this site, it is great and full of useful info. I am a liveaboard living in Toronto with my wife Vicky on a Roberts 44 offshore. I traded up to this boat from a Ranger 33 that I bought as my first boat. I also lived on the Ranger all year but when I got married she was to small for us. Anyway, DO IT. Buy a boat and do it. My wife is from the US who was living in TN working in a church when I met her and she just loves it on board, even in winter. $3500 US a month is a lot of money just going down the drain, We spend about a grand Canadian a month to live almost downtown at a club with everthing you need. Just do it, you can't beat the lifestyle and all the people you meet makes it just that much better. We are going to take the boat south this year with other boats and I just can't wait for that. DO IT, buy a boat and move on board, thats all I can say.

Re: Liveaboard Rentals

We are pretty much in the same "boat". We live in a coastal community and commute to the city for work. We are currently leasing but looking to purchase our own cat or larger monohull to live aboard and begin our transition to a sailing/scuba charter business. We want to put our monthly $$$ into something that could be ours like a rent to as we are not quite in a position to purchase outright at this time. I see so many neglected boats sitting in marinas and/or anchored sail boat that could use a little love. We are always looking and hoping that perfect boat shows up at the right moment. Many are overpriced needing so much work and others are in mint condition and you would be embarrassed to offer less than asking and that is where the banks tend to deny any financing due to the boats actual monetary worth.
